Retrenched apprentices and trainees program

Register as a retrenched apprentice or trainee to get support with recommencing your apprenticeship or traineeship.

The Apprenticeship Employment Network (AEN) is working with the Department of Education to maintain a Victorian register for retrenched apprentices and trainees, supported by staff to provide job matching and other assistance.

The Retrenched Apprentices and Trainees Program was created in response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apprentices and trainees who have lost their employment and are seeking to recommence their training with a new employer are encouraged to register with the Retrenched Apprentices and Trainees Program.

Employers who have vacancies for apprentices or trainees can register job details.
